EyeEm Photography Festival & Awards

Wahoo! It’s giveaway time! To celebrate the exciting re-launch of The Department of Wandering, I’ve teamed up with EyeEm for a pretty special giveaway. The design of the new site is all about showcasing vibrant, beautiful images to help tell a richer story. Photography is such a powerful storyteller isn’t it? It can create emotions, trigger memories and transplant us to a different time and place all within seconds.

Do you guys know EyeEm? It’s a global community and marketplace for real photography. Millions of users worldwide use the platform to upload their images, start a conversation and get discovered. The EyeEm Photography Festival & Awards debuted in Berlin in 2014 as the world’s biggest annual photography award. Last year the event was held in NYC, but this year it’s coming back to Berlin where it all began. The event is all about celebrating emerging talent and exploring what’s next in photography, technology and visual communication. It looks like a seriously inspiring day. I’ve already got my ticket and I’m excited to be giving away 2 more! So who wants to come hang with me at this cool event?
